URGENT – Mark Sanford suspends 2020 presidential campaign

(CNN) — Mark Sanford, the former South Carolina governor and congressman who two months ago launched a longshot primary challenge to President Donald Trump, suspended his candidacy Tuesday, his spokesperson Sarah Allred confirmed. Sanford — who emerged as a vocal Republican critic of the President before losing his congressional seat in a GOP primary contest last year — made the announcement during a press conference at the New Hampshire statehouse. Sanford was one of three Republicans running to unseat Trump; former Illinois Rep. Joe Walsh and former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld remain in the race.
